I saw Meng play first round, and late in the second set she called the trainer, and put on this massive act about her thigh/knee area hurting.

At one stage her opponent came to the net ready to shake hands because she thought Meng was going to retire. Mengs mother though was smiling, she knee it was all an act LOL

Meng certainly knows how to play minds games and intimidate her opponents hehe

Oh really? That's interesting....Anything else to say? I think Meng has a reputation for being a bit rebellious...she was expelled from her Chinese national team for theft, she stole a barret. Anything esle you can say about her? Thanks!

Meng was there with a few relatives, she's a tough bulldog alright, fights hard and no tactic is too low for her to stoop too if its going to give her some advantage, and well good on her, I dont disrespect her for faking it, its definitely got her through that match

Bethanie had so many chances in this match, break points, game points, but she didn't take them. Congrats to Meng for winning!

By the way, I don't believe her parents are with her, she's got a couple who spnsors her, an elderly guy and a 30 something woman...they have sponsored her since she was banned from the national team.

I know, it's quite similar...this is why she's not part of the national team...she travels with her sponsors comppleeetely independantly of the CHinese Tennis Association...
